My Story

On Monday, May 31, 2010, I embarked on a mission to lose weight and to get into the best shape of my life for my wedding. For a long time that mission was a success until life started getting stressful and food became a way to cope with that stress. To make a long story short, the mission fell short before my wedding day was here. And to make things even worse, I stopped eating healthy, exercising, and blogging for over two years. I now have a very beautiful wife and baby boy but my health is still crap. So to turn things around, I am brining back "The Heavy Man" and the "Mission to Healthy."

Day #251, #252, & #253 - A Cardio Filled Weekend

This weekend was filled with constant movement. My buddy Paul and I have joined an adult baseball league that will be taking place this spring. Since we both haven't played since high school, we figured that we should start throwing the ball around as well as get some hitting practice in before our first official practice on Sunday. So you could only imagine how tired and sore we both were after this weekend was over. Of course we worked out in the gym during the weekend but we also got a ton of extra cardio in with baseball practice, Sunday morning basketball, and Monday night basketball. I actually woke up this morning (Tues, Feb 8, 20110) the most sore I have been in a while. But I will take this soreness because it means that I am actually doing activities that will help me lose more weight in the long run. Plus it is fun to branch out into different activities.

Sunday (Feb 6, 2011) was a day that I will not forget when it comes to food. Patty and I ended up going to Paul's house, along with my brother, Caroline, and a few other of our friends. There was so much food on the table that I just couldn't help myself. The only shinning moment of the night was that all of the food was healthy. But that still doesn't neglect the fact that I walked out of that house, more stuffed than I have been, since the start of this mission. Sunday night will be used as a constant remember that I can still lose control every once and a while. I just have to be more careful that it doesn't happen any more. You will notice by my update pictures how my weight fluctuates according to the days because of my pig out session on Sunday night during the Super Bowl.

  1. Sounds like an active weekend! Great job. Mine wasn't so much. I need to try harder to keep workouts up on the weekends.
